The rumor mill is buzzing with anticipation, and the brand's recent teaser hints at a major unveiling at the upcoming 2023 L.A. Auto Show on November 16. While Subaru hasn't officially confirmed that the star of the show will be the Forester, all signs point in that direction. The forest-themed teaser images on the reveal website are practically shouting it from the treetops. As an automotive enthusiast, you won't want to miss this potential game-changer.

Subaru is gearing up for a game-changing move as it sets its sights on introducing "strong hybrids and electric vehicles" to its vehicle roster by 2025. While the current Forester boasts its own set of strengths, one area where it's lagging behind competitors like the Honda CR-V and Hyundai Tucson is the absence of a hybrid offering. As the automotive landscape evolves, this gap becomes increasingly vital, and Subaru's electrifying ambitions are bound to spark curiosity among enthusiasts and eco-conscious drivers alike.

In a bid to stay ahead in the ever-evolving automotive landscape, Subaru is considering a bold move for the upcoming Forester. The talk of the town is that they might just borrow a leaf from their largest shareholder, Toyota, who holds a 20% stake in Subaru. More specifically, they are eyeing Toyota's RAV4 Hybrid engine, a powerhouse capable of churning out 219 horsepower and a torque of 220Nm. If this plan materializes, it promises not only to supercharge the Forester's performance, possibly shaving off its 0-100km/h time, but also to make a substantial impact on city fuel efficiency.

However, there is a twist, Subaru has no plans to leave its traditional roots behind. The trusty 2.5-liter flat-four combustion engine will still be in the mix, giving future Forester owners the exciting choice between a hybrid powerhouse and a more conventional powertrain. It is a thrilling proposition that could reshape the compact SUV segment and redefine what you expect from a Forester.
